Yellow Cardigan + Plaid Collared Dress

Hello again from the west coast! My impromptu business trip eventually came to an end, and I'm back to the real world. My trip was truly wonderful, though, and a nice change of pace. I was in Connecticut most of the week, where I worked out of our office there and bonded with my co-workers. I also got to go into New York City a couple of times, which was a real treat. I went in once on "business," which meant visiting the boutiques of the stores I do customer service for and feeling the clothes in person. I then went in on my own over the weekend, where I met up with my friend Callie. Callie came in from Washington DC, and we spent the weekend wandering around without a plan. It turned out to be perfect, as we had a blast walking the Highline, visiting an SNL exhibit full of costumes and props from the show, and eating delicious Italian food. Callie and I only get to see each other every few months or so, and it was wonderful getting to spend the weekend catching up. I also had the pleasure of meeting up with Jen of JennifHsieh, who was seriously the best. I've never had a bad experience meeting a blogging friend in person, and this was no exception. If I lived in New York, I would force her to hang out with me all the time. She's that cool.

I wore this on Saturday to drink coffee with Whitney at Ink & Bean and visit the Everything Darling pop-up there. I haven't gotten to see Natalie and Grace, the lovely ladies behind the store, in some time, so it was fantastic getting to see them and their adorable clothes again. I almost bought everything, but I refrained. Be proud.

This is dress is one of my favorites, and it seemed like a perfect fit to pair it with this Tuesday Bassen pin from Hello Holiday. A heart lollipop? It's too cute. TOO. CUTE.

Dress: Fleet Collection
Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
